1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This hotel looks like one of the places that Gordon Ramsay needs to save. In a desperate need for refurbishment and managed poorly. Don’t bother to book a breakfast for your whole stay, as you won’t like it. Once the 80 clientele of the place passes away they will go bust and be out of business.

I don't think the standard of the hotel warrants 3 Stars. Breakfast was good, only one choice of a three course evening meal, no sandwiches or choice of any other meal. Bar was only looked after by reception, if you wanted a drink you had to walk to reception every time. Only enough tea and coffee for one cup of each. You could buy your own tea and coffee or buy extra from the hotel. The shower was abysmal, bath extra short. Only very cheap toilet paper very small round soap for two of us.In the main staff were helpful and friendly, just not enough of them. Took several days for the swimming pool to be usable (low PH). The pool building not finished holes where grilles should be. Car park was part of a pay and display, had to put a ticket with your room number and name in windscreen and very low level of lighting. For two females this and hardly any staff during night made us feel uneasy.

Good location.
The location Of the hotel was beautiful and picturesque, right on the bay. The hotel was ok, however it was worn and seemed like it had seen better days. The spa was cold - however working. The pool was nice - beautiful room. Signs showed there might have been a sauna once. The restaurant could not do a la carte, it was three courses or the highway. For the money paid, it was overall disappointing.

What a fabulous location unfortunately the hotel did not match! Very tired in need of revamp. Could be stunning. Food at dinner was unappetising. Breakfast good. £120.00 was steep considering.
